Happy Halloween! Eat your gross, nasty vegetables with boring Inferno and then stick around for the second half of Trolls because the first half is boring. If you need a last minute suggestion of what to watch on Halloween, try Blade II or Hellboy, both of which are directed by Guillermo Del Toro and star Ron Perlman and are perfectly spooky. Also, why you should see Doctor Strange in IMAX.
Only one movie this week– Sully by Clint Eastwood and starring Tom Hanks and Aaron Eckhart. It’s one of Eastwood’s best and one of Hanks’s best too. Andy was worried it was going to be American Sniper Clint Eastwood who yells at empty chairs, but instead we got Unforgiven / Mystic River Clint Eastwood who is a great director.
Beasts of No Nation – released in theaters and on Netflix the same day, this is a story about child soldiers in Africa starring Idris Elba. Go check it out in a local cinema if you want to cry in a theater, or on Netflix if you want to cry at home. Andy gives it 6.5/10
Goosebumps – Based on the books, this is almost more fun for adults than the kids, it includes all the monsters and stories we love and remember. Jack Black is even restrained! Adam has a more full review here and gives it 8/10
Crimson Peak – Sooooooo cool to look at! Absolutely gorgeous. And then it gets Game of Thrones-y. Andy’s full review is here, he gave it a 8.5/10, and Adam gave it 9/10.
